Pockets, I find tricky. The placement, the style, the size. I’m on my second pocket flap now, more rounded. Ignore the great black line through this photo – its rained too solidly to attempt an outdoor shot, so its the decrepit mirror tiles again. I’ve pinned the roll line in the collar too, so that I can transfer it to the pattern. Here’s the pocket flap from the side
Below the flap are soft inverted pleats, (like a released tuck) which I’m experimenting with instead of the original idea of more formal inverted pleats. They’re looking a bit scrappy because I had to raid the seam allowance to make them on this toile.
My Clover double tracing wheel as recommended by The Perfect Nose arrived yesterday from Mercerie Rascol. (They were very quick.) So, now I don’t really have any excuse not to get on with the cutting out .
